GROWING SPIRITUALLY

Problems aren't a sign of failure

God's purpose for us is always good.

From the October 2000 issue of The Christian Science Journal


When I graduated from college, I was required to serve in the United States military during the war in Vietnam. At that time I could see no reason for my having to go into this conflict and convinced myself that there must be a place for me to fulfill my military obligation where I would not be put into a combat situation.
